Westport, County Mayo, Western Ireland
Drive down our little boreen, through the canopy of trees, to the gates of 'Teach Mo Chroi', a fresh friendly country home overlooking the Partry Mountains and Croagh Patrick. Our boreen, Irish for tiny one-lane road, is just a 1/4 mile off N84 and midway between Castlebar and Ballinrobe Town. Only a 15 minute drive into Westport, a bustling seaside town on the Atlantic's Clew Bay, an hour to Galway City, and 25 minutes to Cong Village, home to Ashford Castle and The Quiet Man Cottage.

'Teach Mo Chroi' meaning "Home of My Heart", is set upon an acre of meadowland amidst the farmland of Cartronbower, Ballintubber, where your nearest neighbor is likely to be the cow or sheep in a nearby field.

She gave us a simple and thorough tour and was kind enough to give us some ideas of what to do in the area. It accommodated 10 adults without any difficulty...

Teach mo chroi was the perfect home base for exploring Mayo and Galway. Our family of 7 (ranging in age from 9 to mid 70s) loved the spaciousness of the home; we never felt cramped and appreciated that everything was on one floor. The kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything we needed for meals in and we enjoyed sitting out...

Your cottage is amazing! Pictures cannot give it true justice. There was plenty of room for everyone even the kitchen could seat eleven of us comfortably. But the best part was the views from the back yard, it was breathtaking. Your hostess Moira does an outstanding job at keeping it clean and explaining all the info on how to use...
